Purchase at Quartsite?
« on: September 26, 2017, 06:18:08 PM »
We are planning to go to quartzite RV show in January.  We're in the market for a used class A.  Is quartzite considered a good place to purchase?  Haven't seen this as a topic, apologize in advance if this it misplaced.

Lots of choices there for sure. Best prices?????? The most important thing is to get a floor plan that works for you.

RV shows are generally good for seeing the variety of what is available. Most of them focus on new rigs rather than used, but I've not been to the Quartzite show. Prices are hyped, e.g. "Show Special", but rarely much better than you can get at anytime on the dealer lot. A typical new RV discount offer at a dealer  starts at about 15% off MSRP and sometimes can be negotiated down as much as 30%, so the "show price" is mostly just advertising what is a normal price.

Used RV prices are not as consistent as car prices and vary a lot by locale and season.  The suitability of the floor plan for your needs and the condition are far more important that squeezing the last dollar out of the price.

The Quartzite RV Show advertisement below suggests that this is a one dealer show, so I would not expect any meaningful price competition. It does, however, indicate that both new and used RVs are available.

There might be just one dealer at the show itself, but there are others just outside the show grounds. There are some consignment lots and some private party signs too. In other words, it is pot luck. You might also head to Yuma, not too far away. More there too.
